Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is an uncommon tumor believed to arise from the olfactory epithelium.1 This neoplasm has rarely been reported in children, with only 12 cases reported to date among patients younger than 10 years.2 The usual initial symptom in children, as in older patients, is nasal obstruction or epistaxis3; consequently, the tumor is often first seen by an otorhinolaryngologist. We report a case of ENB in a young child in whom the initial symptom was epiphora; to our knowledge, this initial symptom is previously unreported, and ENB must now be considered in the differential diagnosis of epiphora in childhood.
